During the course of The Ultimate Fighter’s seventeenth season, middleweight Uriah Hall emerged as one of the highest touted fighters in the show’s eight-year history. He entered the season’s finale as a heavy favorite over the youngest cast member, Kelvin Gastelum.
Gastelum, however, imposed his will on Hall en route to a unanimous decision victory in the final.
In Hall’s second fight in the famed UFC Octagon, he was defeated by John Howard by split decision in an uneventful fight.
Following the reality series’ conclusion, Hall and Gastelum have become training partners, and Gastelum believes Hall’s lackluster UFC performances have been all mental.
